Object of the Summer Session
The Summer Session is intended to provide instruction for
regular students of this and other colleges and universities and
for those engaged during the winter in teaching.
The location of Shaw University is especially convenient, sit-
uated practically in the heart of the Capital City. No car
or cab fares will be necessary to visit the shopping district, State
Department of Education, State Museum, State Library, Hall of
History, and other places of educational interest. An exceed-
ingly bracing and healthful climate makes this city an ideal place
for residence and study.
The faculty for the Summer Session will be composed pri-
marily of the regular members of the Shaw University faculty
together with additional specialists in the field of education.
A well equipped and attractive library, consisting of more
than 14,000 books, is located in Library Hall. It is supervised
by a competent librarian who aids the students in their reference
work and guides them in their general reading. Magazines and
daily and weekly newspapers provide ample means for the in-
formation of students on current events. It is the aim of the
Administration to make the library one of great usefulness in
the education of the students in technical knowledge and gen-
Observation and Directed Teaching Facilities
Opportunity for observation and directed teaching under the
supervision of the University Summer School is provided
through the Raleigh Public School System.

made to give to this dormitory the atmosphere of a Christian
home. Estey Hall is under the supervision of the Director of
In Estey Hall there are two cheerful parlors, one for students
and one for teachers, guest rooms, and, in the basement, a
laundry which is open to women students.

the national fraternities, and these, along with trie Y. M. C". A.
room, furnish social centers that make dormitory life more pleas-
Tennis, Croquet, Baseball, and sightseeing tours are among
the forms of recreation provided by the University.
In addition, several social events are held for the students and
faculty of the Summer Session.
Teachers' Employment Bureau
The bureau has secured this year a large number of teaching
and administrative positions for students and former students.
It was established five years ago and exists for the double pur-
pose of supplying the needs of school officials over the State and
of helping students and former students to find teaching and
administrative positions for which they are best fitted.
Assembly exercises are held in the University Auditorium on
Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. All students are required
to attend these exercises. Special addresses are arranged, and
interesting musical recitals presented.

Recent Certification Regulations
Teachers are requested to give close attention to the following
significant certification changes :
1. After July 1, 1933, the Division of Certification will not issue
any new Elementary A Certificates.
2. After July 1, 1934, the Division of Certification will not issue any
new Primary C and Grammar Grade C Certificates.
3. Between October 1, 1935, and August 31, 1936, no teacher in
service shall be given credit for more than twenty semester
hours, a teacher in service being defined as one who teaches
six or more months during the period; and after August 31,
1936, no teacher in service shall be given credit for more than
twenty semester hours during any one year between September
1st of that year and August 31st of the following year. This, it
must be understood, is the maximum total credit from all
4. Between October 1, 1935, and August 31, 1936, no teacher in
service shall be given credit for more than twelve semester
hours through extension class teaching or correspondence
study instruction, with a further limitation of not more than
eight semester hours to be earned between October 1, 1935, and
June 1, 1936. After August 31, 1936, no teacher in service shall
be given credit for more than twelve semester hours of exten-
sion class teaching or correspondence study instruction in any
year between September 1st of that year and August 31st of
the following year, with not more than eight semester hours
permitted between September 1st and June 1st following.
Note 1 — Between October 1, 1935, and June 1, 1936, and between September 1st and June
1st for any year thereafter, the teacher in service should not register for more courses than
would give credit for a total of eight semester hours if and when completed.
Note 2 — Between September 1st and June 1st of any year, the teacher in service should
distribute her work in such a way that at no time, while actually teaching, would she be
able to tarn the equivalent of more than one semester hour's credit during any one month.
Any attempt to earn credit for eight semester hours during a fractional part of the teaching
year would be looked upon with disfavor.
5. Not more than forty percent of the credit necessary to raise a
certificate from one class to another may be earned through ex-
tension class teaching or correspondence study instruction, pro-
vided this limitation shall not prohibit any teacher from earn-
ing- eight semester hours credit through extension class teaching
or correspondence instruction between October 1, 1935, and June
6. The original professional credit necessary for an administrative
or supervisory certificate may not be secured through extension
class teaching or correspondence study instruction.
7. Credit for a total of not more than sixteen semester hours may
be allowed for extension class work taken under the same in-
S. Beginning with September 1, 1936, no extension class course
will be accepted for certificate credit that prior to registration
is not approved by the State Department of Public Instruction
and the county or city superintendent in whose school system
the work is to be given.
9. As of July 1, 1939, and thereafter, the Class A Certificate built
up from a lower grade certificate will be based upon a satis-
factory completion of the requirements for a degree from a stand-
ard college, along with, or in addition to, the specific certificate
requirements. It is suggested that those teachers in service
who may not reasonably be expected to qualify for the Class A
Certificate prior to July 1, 1939, arrange their program of
studies in cooperation with the institution from which they
would like to obtain the degree.
10. For the past several years, credits earned as late as October
1st have been applied on a certificate for that year. Beginning
with September 1, 1936, credits earned after September 1st
will not be applied on a certificate for that school year. This
means that credit to be applied on a certificate for the school
year 1936-37 must be earned not later than September 1, 1936.
Institutions are urged to report the credit with the least pos-
sible delay after September 1st.
